Public restrooms are in short supply in Ireland. They are easy enough to find in public places such as airports, train stations, and shopping malls, but if not in one of these locations, your best bet is to look for the nearest pub (never more than a few minutes away in Ireland!). Restrooms are often labeled in Irish—fir (men) and mná (women). Pubs are increasingly putting up signs saying that restrooms are for customers only—but this is difficult to enforce. If it's outside of shopping or pub hours, your last option may be the nearest hotel. Most gas stations have toilets available. Only toilets in hotels or shopping centers are up to a polished North American standard. Although many toilets look well worn, they are generally clean. Unfortunately, few restrooms are heated and an open window is typically used for ventilation, making for an uncomfortably cold experience in the colder months.
